Speed Runs

Speed running (trying to complete a videogame in the fastest time possible) is almost as old as gaming itself. At least, it's almost as old as games that have a definite end point or staging points, since speedrunning a game with infinitely repeating levels is Sisyphean.

This collection hosts downloadable movie files documenting the swiftest possible way to complete videogames such as Quake, Metroid, Zelda and many others. The videos come from Speed Demos Archive, TASvideos, and other sources.

Unless specifically noted as an 'emulated' run, all speed runs are done on the original game hardware, using only the normal save points available to a player.

Super Metroid - 100% TAS in 0:36 by Cpadolf, completed in August 29, 2008. This is a solid improvement to the previous 100% run, showing a completely new route designed by hero of the day (Norfair items suitless, to save time in Kraid's Lair later), and alot of new speed tricks in various rooms. Author's comments: This is my improvement over JXQ's 100% Super Metroid run, it is 2 minutes and 34 seconds faster than his version in realtime, or 9249 frames, and ~1 minute and 51 seconds faster...

Super Metroid Redesign - any% TAS by Drewseph, completed in October 25, 2006. It uses the classic route, and shows many cool tricks, and crazy sequence breaks. Author's comments: For those who have played through the game once or twice, I think you'll find this run VERY fast. you can watch it and be surprised by the final time which it vastly improved over atmas early test TAS (which was 1:40). Thanks to moozooh for helping me test out boss hp, and quick trick shortcut manuvers =) he easily...

The Brood, an ancient race of dragons, is all but extinct. Their power was so strong that they had to be killed. A, the last one of the Brood, is awaken after 400 years and he wants to know more about his people. Well aware of his fearful power, A uses it until he becomes strong enough to rely on his physical power. After which he manipulates luck to an indecent extent, using frame-by-frame advance to pulverize his foes, and even the final boss. It may be a little anti-climactic, but it's much...

Super Metroid - 100% TAS in 0:37 by JXQ, completed in March 15, 2007. It uses a very optimized route, shows many stunning tricks, techniques, and incredible boss-strategies throughout the run. Author's comments: This is an improvement of 2 minutes and 25 seconds to my previous run. I never expected to get anywhere close to this much improvement. I aimed for real time instead of game time - this means that I took efforts to reduce lag, pause screens, and door transitions, even at the cost of...

For more details, see http://tasvideos.org/68M.html This timeattack is about Addams Family, but not the Fester's Quest one. This is really the seventh version, and the first published version. Note: This movie may not look cool, but the player is not to be blamed. The game is a little bad. You have to avoid objects by afar if you don't want to get hit, and you really have to collect $1M to complete the game. In my opinion Hans has done very good job perfecting this movie.

Ludicrous-speed bouncing around. Completed without collecting any emeralds, with both Sonic and Tails controlled by the player. This run takes everything you know about Sonic and Knuckles and turns it upside-down. It extensively uses the "scroll objects offscreen to pass through them" trick to zip and warp to places that shouldn't be reached, break bosses, and effectively skip entire stages. It is worth noting that nitsuja and Upthorn did not directly participate in the creation of...

Banjo-Kazooie is a game that needs little introduction. For those of you who need one, the bear-bird team of Banjo and Kazooie are searching for Jiggys (Jigsaw puzzle pieces) to unlock doors and save Banjo's sister from a rhyming witch. Even though Banjo's name is first, Kazooie ends up doing most of the heavy lifting as new skills are developed. This run collects all 100 Jiggys hidden throughout the game and ends with the in-game clock reading 2:00:28. Originnal site:...

When the blob eats them, it transforms into different tools the boy can use. Note: There are sound errors due to incorrect emulation in Famtasia, the emulator used to create this TAS.

Submission: http://tasvideos.org/3413S.html Publication: http://tasvideos.org/1945M.html This is a completely new type of Super Mario World TAS. It beats the game by getting the "THE END" screen in the second level (Yoshi's Island 3). This happens because a glitch allowing Yoshi to eat "nothing" enables players to manipulate memory and code into bringing up the final screen of the game.
